The biggest privilege of this job is seeing, first hand, the lengths to which people go in order to make their yacht their own. From the vibrant style of 110 metre Jubilee (page 164), to the restrained chic of Wally sailing yacht Barong D (page 298), I have yet to see a yacht interior that is not a showcase in true craftsmanship and quality. And for many owners and their partners, the entire yacht’s design scheme starts off with something as small as a much-loved swatch of fabric, or a particular feature in a home’s cornicing (page 132). Fabric, in fact, maketh the yacht – and with the growth in new and exciting varieties of leathers, silks, outdoor fabrics and carpets on the market – not to mention the environmentally…

Jonathan Glynn-Smith Fashion photographer Jonathan Glynn-Smith has shot for Vogue and Condé Nast Traveller. A keen sailor since the age of six, he describes being on the water as a completely natural environment for work and play. He shot this month’s fashion story (page 254) on board 41.1m Baglietto Ability in the Côte d’Azur. He lives in Wimbledon. What was the inspiration behind the shoot? It was inspired by another recent shoot I did with heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua. The powerful presence of a boxer also suited the impactful nature of the boat What did you like about shooting on Ability? Her contemporary shape and jet black hull added a really futuristic element Did you enjoy shooting in Menton and Antibes? I’ve been shooting in Antibes for 20 years and it’s so full…

black beauty

After months spent meticulously tracking her sea trials, yachtspotters were finally treated to a spectacular sight in late summer when the gargantuan sailing yacht Black Pearl was seen in all her glory, with three colossal DynaRig masts flying jet black sails. Built by Oceanco under the name Project Solar, this Nuvolari Lenard design is also notable for her wave-piercing bow, developed by Dykstra Naval Architects. Measuring 105m, she is considered the world’s largest sailing yacht, since the only yacht with sails that’s bigger, Sailing Yacht A, is classed as a “sail-assisted motor yacht”. oceancoyacht.com This month : Grace Kelly cruises to her wedding with Prince Rainier III, the head-turning Wallypower 80 and six of the best sundeck bars…

that’s show business

Only 32 yachts, with an average length of 32 metres, attended the first Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) back in 1991. At that time, yachts were moored only along Quai des Etats-Unis. This year, the whole Port Hercules will be packed with an anticipated 125 superyachts, with an expected average length of 44 metres. “In 1991, I don’t think anyone could have predicted the superyacht industry would evolve over the next 26 years to reach the dizzying heights it has today,” says Alev Karagulle, director of marketing and communications at Burgess. Over the years, the show has grown to become a barometer for the mood of this niche industry. It is now unmissable for anyone who works in superyacht design or construction anywhere in the world. “Westport attended the MYS for the first…

eye opener

There could hardly have been a more fitting ship than the SS Constitution to ferry Grace Kelly from New York to her wedding to Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956. The ship was launched in 1951 as a new breed of cruise liner for modern travellers – leaving behind the starched formality of pre-war incarnations and instead offering an elegant informality. The princess-to-be, meanwhile, was an American film star on her way to inject the 800-year-old House of Grimaldi with a dose of modern glamour. Kelly was seeing the French actor Jean-Pierre Aumont when she met Rainier, who hosted her and a delegation of Americans attending the Cannes Film Festival for a photo shoot at the Palace of Monaco. That photographer, Edward Quinn, recalled later that the prince was…

Areti’s grand arrival Winch Design opens up about the new 85m Lürssen that’s taking the Mediterranean by storm Lürssen and Winch Design are certainly no strangers to one another: the German yard and the British studio have completed seven major yacht projects over the past 13 years. The most recent, 85m Areti, is cruising the Mediterranean ahead of a show-stealing debut at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show. After a stop-off in Gibraltar, her first port of call in the Mediterranean proper was the Sardinian port of Cagliari, and she is sure to turn heads wherever she drops anchor, with an elegant cat’s eye-shaped cut-out that curves from her aft deck up to her bow and its certified helipad. Fully PYC compliant, Areti can welcome up to 18 guests who will have plenty…
